Hilliard Division of Police officers arrested a 51-year-old man for second-degree-felony burglary after he allegedly entered a residence on the 3100 block of Fishinger Boulevard in Norwich Township.
The 82-year-old homeowner called police at 4:29 p.m. May 6 to report a man entered her residence by forcing open the front door.
Upon seeing the resident, the man yelled at her in an apparent attempt to frighten her before running away on foot, said police spokeswoman Andrea Litchfield.
The call was dispatched as an active burglary and officers created a perimeter in the area, Litchfield said. A description of the alleged burglar was aired over the radio.
An officer saw a man matching the description near Dublin Road and Fishinger Boulevard, and after a brief foot chase, the man was apprehended on the 3700 block of Dublin Road.
He was arrested and transported to the Franklin County jail.
